This gene encodes a sodium bicarbonate cotransporter (NBC) involved in the regulation of bicarbonate secretion and absorption and intracellular pH. Mutations in this gene are associated with proximal renal tubular acidosis. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SLC4A4 Gene
SLC4A4 (Solute Carrier Family 4 (Sodium Bicarbonate Cotransporter), Member 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC4A4 include autosomal recessive proximal renal tubular acidosis and renal tubular acidosis, proximal, with ocular abnormalities. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Glucose / Energy Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include transporter activity and anion transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC4A8.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC4A4 Gene
Electrogenic sodium/bicarbonate cotransporter with a Na(+):HCO3(-) stoichiometry varying from 1:2 to 1:3. May regulate bicarbonate influx/efflux at the basolateral membrane of cells and regulate intracellular pH.
Isoform 2: May have a higher activity than isoform 1.
